    Some of you guys (and you know EXACTLY who you are) would actually be pretty good shooters if you quit dicking around with your guns.

    JMHO of course.

    The information given doesn't seem specific enough for anybody to really be able to offer any great advice. While I doubt it's the gun barrel, patterning it would at least eliminate that as a problem or cause. I'm making an assumption that there were no stock or fitting changes.

    If it's an eye dominance issue then the information about what is happening needs to be a lot more specific. Is he seeing two beads, is he switching to his left eye, does his sighting eye have good crisp vision, etc, etc. Get some more info and you'll get some more thoughts.

    If he had an eye dominance problem it's likely he would have gotten the 65 last fall. Sounds like the gun to me, which isn't anywhere near as scary as an eye problem. I'd start tracking that original barrel down as soon as he comes back from the eye doctor. Good luck.

    I don't really know what to say to help but that really sucks...not just the score but also getting a new barrel on a gun that doesnt help you.

    Sorry

    As crazy as this sounds, the barrel could be crooked. Leo had a student several years ago that had been shooting for 14 years and never broken a 25 so he signed up for a clinic. Leo always does a gun fit session as part of the class. When he looked down the guy's barrel, it went off to the side! The barrel had been bought new, from the factory and from the looks of the rest of the gun, never abused. Never hurts to have someone else take a look.
